God Has the Answers

Proverbs 3 5 a

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

Trust in the Lord, not in yourself, not in your own wisdom, understanding or feelings.  Not in your education, in your profession or in the world. Trust in God the Father at all times. Trust in His love, grace and mercy. God knows everything from the beginning to the end. He knew you before you were born and He knows the plans He has for your future. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, surrender to His will, obey His commands and know that He loves you with an everlasting love. Trust in the Word of God to guide and direct you and in His promises for He is faithful. We may not have the answers but we know the One who does. Jesus is the answer.

Confess Your Sins to God

1 john 1 9

Verse of the Day:  1 John 1:9

If we confess our sin, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Even on our best days we still sin in our daily lives and unconfessed sin can be a stumbling block that keeps us from having fellowship with God. Although our past, present and future sins have been paid for by Jesus Christ, we must confess our personal and daily sins to God to stay in good standing. The Bible says, The Lord is far from the wicked but He hears the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29) When we confess our sins we are forgiven and purified from unrighteousness. Humbly come before the Lord and honestly confess your sins against Him for He alone is able to truly forgive. God is merciful and ready to forgive, don’t let unconfessed sin come between you and the Lord.

Joyfully lift your hands toward your heavenly Father in heaven to praise Him and give Him all the honor and glory. The Lord is great and greatly to be praised! As long as you have breath in your lungs, praise God!

God is Faithful

I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.

Though life may disappoint and try us, we can be assured that God honors and fulfills His promises. We can trust and rely on God’s faithfulness which has been established in heaven and stands firm forever. During the hardest trials, our faith in God’s love and mercy will always bring us peace and comfort. Our hope and confidence in God lies in His faithfulness because His Word is true and trustworthy forever and ever. Even if we are faithless, God remains faithful. (2 Timothy 2:13)

Hold On to Hope

Hebrews 10 23 2

Verse of the Day: Hebrews 10:23

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

It’s easy to have faith in God when everything is going our way and when things are good. But when difficult times come and our faith is being stretched we can’t give up hope. As God’s children we need to hold on to the hope of God’s promises knowing that He is always faithful. The promises of God are exceedingly great and He fulfills each one in His own timing. God never changes His mind, He never forgets and His Word is true for all eternity. God will never lie, deceive or mislead you. Even if it feels like He has overlooked you or if He feels far away, have faith and remember He is always with you and He has never ever failed in any of His promises. Keep hoping, keep believing and keep trusting God.

God’s Word exists for all people equally and its path leads to heaven and happiness. We can be confident and believe every Word because He is truly faithful in all He does and keeps every promise. God is good and never changes, we can rely on this truth. He is so deserving of all praise for His righteousness, truth and faithfulness.

Praise His Name

Psalm 99 3

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 99:3

Let them praise your great and awesome name – he is holy.

The Lord is so worthy of our praise. We serve a mighty God who is wonderful, merciful and faithful. Praise Him for who He is, for His goodness and holiness. Praising His holy name invites His presence and opens a path to a deeper connection and relationship with our Creator and the King of the world. Focus on the Lord and give Him all your attention and praise Him with all your heart and soul. Just come before the Lord to give Him praise, honor and glory. Blessed be the name of the Lord!

God Hears You

1 John 5 14

Verse of the Day: 1 John 5:14

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

Pray with the full confidence that God hears you, He is faithful and He is a loving God. God hears all your prayers and He answers each one. Sometimes the answer is yes, sometimes the answer is no and sometimes the answer is not right now but in His timing. The key words here are “according to His will”.  Always pray “according to his will” asking that the Lord’s will be done, not yours, that His promises be fulfilled for He alone knows His plans for you. Pray by faith in the name of Jesus with humility and reverence because no matter what the answer is, you can be sure He has heard your prayer.
